A wedding is the beautiful result of so many helping hands from friends and family. But a proposal is the special time that you get with each other, to really experience your love and affection as a couple — and without the world outside!

What is the best place to propose in NYC?

Central Park, Times Square and Brooklyn Bridge Park are the most famous places for proposing in NYC. These are the 3 areas where many start their quest to find a romantic spot. Central Park alone has so many aspects, from the scenic Bow Bridge (a favorite with film buffs) to hidden waterfalls that no tourist will chance upon. But New York has hundreds of great proposal spots; contact me and I will help you find one that suits your ideas.
